Vivo announced recently the launch of the new APEX 2019 concept smartphone. Vivo’s first 5G smartphone offers an ultra-simple and uniquely recognisable design with Curved-Surface Waterdrop Glass and no openings, seams or bezels for a simpler user experience.
Super Unibody Design
The APEX 2019 introduces a sleek and truly FullView design. The device successfully delivers an unconventional smartphone experience by completely removing physical buttons – instead adopting Touch Sense technology, which brings together capacitive touch and pressure-sensing. With carefully designed programming logic and software, the pressure sensors can tell if you are pressing the frame and the capacitive touch can determine its position, providing extra-sensitive accuracy.
USB ports are replaced by a MagPort, a magnetic power connector which enables both charging and data transfer. This allows for a more streamlined user experience, as well as making the body more compact.
The APEX 2019 also turns its display into a speaker by using Body SoundCasting technology, transforming the entire APEX 2019 display into a speaker via the screen vibration function, avoiding the need for a speaker grill.
Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning
The APEX 2019 comes equipped with Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology, with a sensor covering almost the entire display. This enables you to touch almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device seamlessly, supported by Vivo’s cutting-edge Fingerprint Light function – when the user’s finger is close to the display, the pixels around the touch point will automatically light up as an additional light source to help obtain a clear fingerprint image.
A larger sensor also enables more features to bolster security for using apps. When you wake the device from an inactive screen and press on the corresponding app icon to scan your finger, you can unlock and gain direct access to the app so that the experience is faster and more efficient than before.
5G Smartphone for Variety of User Scenarios
Vivo’s first 5G smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform with 12GB RAM, a super-large memory of 512GB, and is equipped with Jovi AI Assistant, along with many other smart functions.
The APEX 2019’s 5G mobile network capability enables an enhanced experience for video viewing, cloud gaming and a variety of other user scenarios.
The APEX 2019 has also solved the challenge of limited motherboard space by using a Duplex PCB Design which has increased the available space by 20% to minimize the overall stacking space. This is Vivo’s solution to free up space for the 5G modules, making the phone a true unibody 5G phone.
